Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Floyd Green, says the growth of Jamaica’s mango export programme is expected to boost the volume of goods shipped to external markets this year.

Mr. Green said they are looking to see tremendous growth this season.

He was speaking after seeing off a recent shipment of some 1,100 boxes of East Indian and St. Julian mangoes, totalling over 5,000 kilogrammes, to the US from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay on Friday.

The shipment is the first to that country for 2021 and the second since the start of the year, following the exportation of over 4,000 kilogrammes of the fruit to the United Kingdom in April.
